The man accused of killing three young children in Maryland appeared in court on Monday, and his bizarre behavior resulted in a judge requesting a mental evaluation.
NBC reports that a Maryland court had to halt its proceedings due to ongoing, disturbing outbursts by Antonio Shareek Williams. The suspect was in court for a bail hearing in connection with the deaths of three children, all under the age of 10. Williams allegedly stabbed his two cousins, 9-year-old Ariana Elizabeth DeCree and 6-year-old Ajayah Royale DeCree, and his sister, 6-year-old Nadiara Janae Withers, on Thursday night in his mother’s Clinton home.

“I’m not the one you looking for. I’m not the one you’re looking for,” Williams screamed in court, although he previously gave police a full confession.
The defendant’s mother, Andrena Kelley, yelled “Mommy loves you” to her son, which enraged the fathers of victims.
“Your daughter is the one who needed you,” yelled one of the fathers, referring to Nadiara, Kelley’s daughter.
Both fathers of the victims had to be restrained as tempers flared and emotions inside the courtroom reached a boiling point.
“He’s here. Here’s here. No. No. No. No. I’m not the one you’re looking for,” Williams continued.
Kelley told authorities that she left Williams in charge of the children while she worked an overnight shift. At 7:30 a.m on Friday, Kelley returned to her home off of the 6400 block of Brooke Jane Drive, and discovered all three kids on the floor, lifeless from multiple stab wounds. Williams was still in the home when his mother arrived, along with a 2-year-old who was unharmed.
“This has to be, I tell you, one of the worst days we have ever had,” Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela D. Alsobrooks said during the hearing.
The judge ordered Williams to remain in bail without bond, pending a mental competency evaluation.
Meanwhile, a family member set up a GoFundMe account to help with funeral and burial expenses for Nadiara.
